Couples Yoga: Have Better Sex

Want to get your horn dog into a down dog? Unfortunately it seems a lot of guys aren't any more enthused about going to yoga than they are about going to the latest Paul Rudd movie. "You won't see many guys in yoga because they don't feel comfortable letting go of control," says Charles Matkin, who owns Matkin Yoga in New York City. "They want to be macho and punch things." But he explains that even—or perhaps especially—macho men can learn a thing or two on the mat that they can use on the mattress.

"Sex is primal," Matkin says. "You have to be okay with being dominant and submissive." He says that men's abilities in bed are also limited by back pain and overall muscle tension—two other problems yoga addresses. Men of the obviously-I'm-a-sex-god mindset may not realize just how tight their lower back and hips are from sports and sitting, or that that stiffness could possibly impact their performance. A mat quickie can correct it.

Why He'll Be Interested
You'll have to be persuasive, though. Appeal to his intellect and explain that mastering the ancient science of yoga is akin to a dual degree in physiology and philosophy. Then put it in terms he'll really get: Applied to your sex life? "That means a little practice can turn you into a pleasure guru, babe. It can increase flexibility, improve staying power, delay ejaculation, and bring us more in sync with each other." We bet he already has two mats rolled out.

Matkin's three-pose-plus-pranayama combo is powerful enough to unleash limitless passion potential in both of you, ease the pressure of performance, and limber you up for some old-fashioned love. Ten minutes a day in these poses is even better than one full-blown yoga class each week.

The Moves:

1. Downward-facing dog (adho mukha svanasana), modified
Bring sexy back by helping each other release any tension or pain that's accumulated around the lumbar spine.

Ask your guy to come into downward-facing dog pose, schooling him if necessary. Then grab hold his thighs (only, wandering hands are for later) and gently pull him toward you and up, lifting the weight out of his hands slightly and releasing his lower back. Hold for 10 breaths, then switch positions. Sans partner: Take a yoga strap, belt, or tie and create a big loop. Tie one end securely to a doorknob. Then facing away from the closed door, position the strap across the middle of your thighs and tie the other end to the doorknob. You should be able to fold forward from the hips and feel some pressure on your thighs pulling you toward the door. Walk your hands forward on the floor if possible coming into down dog.

2. Crescent lunge
Strengthening both his pelvic floor and yours will enhance his staying power double your pleasure

Stand tall, point your tailbone down, and pull you abs in. Step your right foot forward a leg's length and bend your right knee till your thigh is parallel to the floor, lowering yourself into a lunge. Straighten your left leg fully, reaching back through the heel. Then lift your arms straight up overhead or rest your hands on your hips. Engage your pelvic floor by imagining that you are holding in urine. Stay here for 10 breaths. Then switch sides.

3. Wide-legged forward bend (prasarita padottanasana)
The ultimate groin, hips, and hamstring stretch, this pose can unlock your pelvis and allow your mojo to really move you.

Stand with your legs 4 feet apart, toes pointing slightly inward. Engage your thigh muscles, keeping your legs straight without locking your knees. Then bend forward from your hips, keeping your back flat. Place your hands on the back of chair, on your calves, or on the floor. Relax your neck and allow it to hang loosely without tension. Hold for 20 to 30 seconds, imagining the space between each vertebra of your spine expanding. As you become more flexible, your forearms will rest on floor.

4. Bonk-me breath
Sync your breath to soothe your senses—and seduce your mat mate

Have him sit cross-legged and then sit on his lap face to face. If he's not around, imagine he is. Then start to breathe more deliberately and match your breath to your partner's, trying to make only the most minute movements. Stay for as long as possible in this frictionless position, matching your breathing to each other's. Begin to sway slightly only when you feel you're totally in tune. Begin to breathe on each other's neck or ear. Slowly take it further if you so choose.
